Flaxseeds help Depression

Flaxseed BreadOmega 3 has been shown to be effective in helping to relieve depression and bipolar disorder.

Flaxseeds contain more omega 3's than any other vegetarian source of food. Most people in North America do not get anywhere near the optimal amount of omega 3 fatty acids in their daily diet.

Two tablespoons of ground flaxseed will provide you with 140 percent of the daily recommended value of omega 3 fatty acids.

To see more about the correlation between lack of omega 3's in the diet and depression, see an article on the benefits of flaxseeds in helping to alleviate depression here.
